President’s Message:

The hobby of ornamental fish keeping is becoming increasingly popular in all parts of the country including rural India. It is estimated that presently 1.25% of urban households are keeping an aquarium either at home or workplace which is expected to grow to 5.00% in the next decade. It would be possible as both annual average per capita income (AAPCI) and the number of Middle Income Group Households (MIGHh) that are considered important indicators of any developing economy are continuously achieving higher peaks.
